Our off the beaten path, private boat tour of Saona Island from Santo Domingo allows you to discover the natural wonders of the island in a very different and sustainable way. The largest island in Dominican waters, this beautiful nature preserve is very popular and gets visited by millions of tourists year round. While most of the visitors are only shown a very small portion of the island, our unique nature tour takes you away from the crowds to explore virgin beaches, mangrove forests, coastal lagoons, enjoy an amazing lunch at the sleepy fishing village of Mano Juan, visit a local turtle conservation center, and take a dip in a gorgeous sand bar in the middle of the ocean. Allow us to show you the greener, less touristy side of this pristine tropical paradise!
